Listed with my thoughts on posting frequency and signal to noise ratio –
- Kindle Chronicles – The one podcast a week is usually the best kindle related post of the week.
- Andrys’ Kindle World – Very high ratio of good posts to bad posts.
- Teleread – Despite the high volume manages to have a lot of very good posts, and addresses areas beyond the Kindle.
- Blog Kindle – Recently with the Unicode Font Hack and Kindle Calculator tip this blog has evolved from a ‘picture a day’ blog to being valuable. Again, recent posts have a very good percentage of good posts.
- Books on the Knob – While, the free kindle booksection of my blog covers free books really well (15 in the first 15 days of June), this blog is EXCELLENT for cheap kindle books.
- Kindleville – Low posting frequency now, and Joe Wikert is missed.
- Kindle Reader – A great place to go to for finding good books and good books in different genres. Jan does a good job of identifying books worth reading.
Also, Kindle Forums at Amazon and MobileRead. Not blogs – However, a lot of new stuff bubbles up here, and although the ratio of good posts is lower than with blogs these are good places to find new ideas and books.
Why list these Kindle Blogs?
Wanted to list down the blogs and sites that consistently produce high quality kindle related content and that I consider as dangerous competition (well, a rising tide lifts all boats, so perhaps the success of the kindle should be the primary concern).
Its mostly a reminder to myself to not slack on quality (which the last few weeks I’ve felt has been the case) since there are quite a few good blogs that people can choose instead of visiting this Kindle Review Blog.
The three main criteria were –
- Number of really good posts.
- Ratio of good to not-so-good posts.
- A good, and not too high posting frequency. At least a post a day and probably not more than 3 or 4 in a day.
